Best female vocals, looking for suggestions

Recommended Posts

Mmm, Julie London.  I remember when I first saw her on Emergency as a kid. For some reason she caught my attention. didn't know she sang until much later.  I like the way she says "Daddy" in the song above.  Could do without the horn section, however.

I recently came across a recording that reminded me of this post. Thought I would add to the list (I, too, have great admiration for the talent and production that went into Famous Blue Raincoat)... So, anyway – Alison Krauss sings a lullaby on the disc "Appalachian Journey" by Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Mark O'Connor (Released by Sony Classical).

 

This song/rendition may be a sleeper (I have not found it anywhere else) – and sits exquisitely, tucked-away on this mostly instrumental album.

My Uncle "OZ" was a HUGE fan of Julie London, and because I spent lots of time as a chld at his and Aunt Katie's place, and he played her records quite often, I became a big-time fan, too!

im a little late to this thread but i just read through all 8 pages & am amazed that no one mentioned one of the best female rock vocalists ever... ann wilson of heart!  she has an amazing voice & can sing heavy rock songs & softer ballads effortlessly, not to mention in the early days she was drop dead gorgeous!  same with her sister nancy!  ann can still sing today as good as ever!

Take a trip in the way back machine to Jo Stafford, who was very popular with our GIs in WWII.

Tolerable, thanks for asking.

 

Looks like craigslisters have figured out the value of pre-listened Klipsch.

Carly Simon also has two sisters who are fantastic singers, Lucy, and Joanna (an opera mezzo-soprano!)
